    Would be willing to bet that a large portion of the Tundra/Tacoma facility wages after taxes are sent back to Mexico. Different world in that city.

    Tundras are 75% made of American parts so I don't know how much it matters whether you buy a US or foreign nameplate.
    There is a difference. It's true that Toyota use American parts, and that gives profit to those companies making the parts. However, when Toyota's are sold. The profit goes to a Japanese company.

    Not the same as an American owned company.

    Toyota is probabally more made here then ford, gm, or dodge. Even my honda 4wheeler says made in USA on it.

    It's not hard to understand the difference between made and owned. The profit Toyota makes goes back to Japan.

    It doesn't matter where it's assembled.

    I think more of the Toyota profit stays here then most think. Plus it creates alot of jobs here. So I would say the US is making money from toyota being here.

    Never said that a lot of the money didn't stay here, but it's still not an American company.


    Let me ask you this. Do you think more money stays here, or goes back to Japan?

    I think more stays here when its all said and done. My 4 wheeler says "made in USA by honda of north america" That leads me to believe they keep the american division separate. Would be interesting to see come actual numbers though.

    You need to think about this. The more money the USA division of Toyota makes. The more money Toyota of Japan makes. They aren't separate companies.

    But also the more money toyota makes here the more stays here and the more jobs they make. I cant think of a midsize pickup thats actually american made so anything comparable to a toyota involves a foreign company.
